The Diabetes Dental Health Connection

Posted on 1/9/2023 by Beautiful Smiles Office
The Diabetes Dental Health ConnectionPeople who are living with diabetes are at an increased risk of developing oral health issues. Therefore, they have to ensure that they maintain dental hygiene routines to ensure that they can avoid some of the common oral diseases. High blood sugar is the biggest connection between diabetes and oral health issues. When you have diabetes and you fail to control your blood sugar levels you can develop issues such as gum disease, tooth decay, and gum inflammation. When diabetes is left uncontrolled, your white blood cells, which fight against bacterial infections, weaken, and therefore you will be unable to avoid some of these oral health conditions caused by bacteria.

What are some of the oral health problems associated with diabetes

People who have diabetes are at risk of developing dry mouth due to a reduction in the levels of saliva. If this continues, the patient can develop tooth decay, infections, ulcers, and soreness.

Periodontitis and gingivitis are also common in people who have diabetes. The disease can cause the thickening of blood vessels, which significantly hinders the flow of nutrients to body tissues and organs and the flow of nutrients from the tissues. This together with the weakening of white blood cells, leaves the body in a vulnerable state and will therefore be unable to fight infections, leading to gum disease.

Oral tissues also heal poorly when a person suffers from diabetes. This is because of weakened white blood cells, and the interrupted flow of blood to oral tissues. Therefore, conditions that could heal naturally and in a short time, suddenly become serious oral conditions.

When you are suffering from diabetes, you might likely suffer from thrush. This is because of the use of different medications to control various issues brought about by diabetes. The anti-biotics that you take can lead to fungal infections in your tongue and mouth, due to the high glucose levels.
